Publisher Description

Bridget Needham knows first-hand how a Special Ops man can shatter a girl's heart. She's still kicking herself over the one that got away… after watching him get down on one knee and propose to someone else.

After giving up her career to re-open her aunt's struggling bed-and-breakfast inn, the last thing she needs is a sexy-as-sin SEAL showing up on her doorstep—especially when the secrets of her past still threaten to keep her from holding onto love.

Besides, this guy might have a Greek god bod and an impressively large power drill, but he also has a girlfriend two thousand miles away.

Former Navy SEAL Maddox Kerry hadn't intentionally landed himself in Annapolis during Commissioning Week—the one week when it's next-to-impossible to find a place to stay. So it's mission-critical that he convince an adorably awkward innkeeper whose bed-and-breakfast is closed for renovations to let him stay.

And hey, if he finds himself hoping for a little more than the customary turn-down service, who can blame him?

Yet every time the chemistry sparks between them, she runs for cover.

Any other guy would shrug his shoulders and move on. But he can't walk away when he senses the pain behind her prim exterior.

Because Maddox Kerry isn't any other guy.

Great read

A book that makes you feel, loved the characters. Great story teller with just the right amount of sex appeal. Want to know what was in the envelope though.

No Reservations

A very touching story about family ties, loyalty and commitment. Determination is a key aspect in this and I admire that greatly. It makes a wonderful goal to work towards, both in the story and in life.

Unanswered Questions

Great story, but the author left waaayyy too many unanswered questions. The h’s family kept seeming like it was going to play a big role in her backstory and the plot but other than one or two brief discussions about them, the “mystery” of their strained relationship and the parents lies was never resolved. And what was in the envelope?!?!? Not answering that one was a full star lost in itself. It was set up to be the pivotal moment in the story and then went literally nowhere. It’s a shame, because if the loose ends were tied up this could have been 5 stars. (And no, these things are not resolved in the next book which focuses on different people.)
